Tulip Poplar Trees--very fast growing tree with giant gold blooms in the spring, lush green leaves for shade in the summer, and then a magnificent yellow display in fall. Grows cone shaped without pruning.
Liriope muscari - We need 19 Easy to grow, and spreads. Good for lining sidewalks. I have these and the flowers are a pretty shade of purple. Bees and butterflies like them. In winter, they produce interesting large seeds.
Cut the bottom off a plastic pot to contain invasive plants & bury in the ground, works great for containing plants that tend to spread. Use a larger pot so that the plant can spread it's roots and grow deeper roots. Great for bamboo!
